We teach two Buddhist meditation practices: Mindfulness of Breathing, for developing awareness, integration and clarity of mind; and Mettā Bhāvanā ("development of loving kindness"), which brings about a gentle but radical transformation of our emotional world. Each week we alternate between the two practices.
We will help you to set up in good posture and give a fully led practice, so there is no need for any previous experience.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to book?
No, just turn up!
What should I wear?
There are no special requirements, just whatever is comfortable to sit in.
Do I need to be a Buddhist?
No - the class is suitable for everyone, especially those who are completely new to meditation and Buddhism.
How much does the class cost?
We don't charge a fixed price for our classes but instead invite you to make a donation to the centre to help us cover our running costs.
A donation of $5-10 would help us to cover our costs, but everyone is equally welcome, even if you cannot give anything at all.
